12 oz. can into a pint glass. After Party pours deep straw to light orange in color and offers a decent off white cap. Carbonation looks good and leaves light lacing throughout.

Aroma initially has some odd hop aromas that seem mellow out to leave a light malt character though nothing stands out too much. Bit of light citrus up front. As the beer outgasses the smell is a bit more tannic with some old or overly extracted grain notes.

Taste is of faint caramel malts supported by a largely neutral grain character. Light biscuit flavor/feel up front segues to a faint oily finish with the return of a bit of orange citrus. Overall a tad watery in texture on average but has no offensive qualities per se. Touch of hop spice on the finish at times.

Overall slightly better than expected out of the Contract Beer Mill that is Rochester, NY. Aroma is the only real downfall. And with cryptic coding on the can I have no idea how fresh the contents are.

12 oz can, no dating info that I can make any sense of.

Pours on the darker side of amber, typical looking head, low froth, and leaving strands of lacing.

Minor hop nose

Middle of the road pale ale/amber, moderate hops and bready malts ....decently solid, but nothing special. I am surpirsed by the very low scores for this one...underrated IMHO

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear golden amber color with a large white head. The aroma is yeast and malt with a small amount of hops. The taste is malt driven and is pretty solid.

12 oz can from a 12-pack sampler from Walmart. Copper color, medium foamy head, mild citrus aroma. Not much flavor, just an inoffensive, bland pale ale, slightly bitter. Bought it on a whim for barely $1 a can, can't say it's worth any more than that.

From the 12 fl. oz. can with a stamp: E186-1316:18. Sampled on December 31, 2016.

Not a bad looking medium amber pour under a big, off-white foamy head that fades some but leave a lot of lacing.

The aroma is your basic pale ale sweet caramel malt breadiness with a kind of herbal hop character thrown in for good measure.

Light to medium body.

The taste brings out a pleasant and moderately sweet barley and grainy malt character that is balanced with a slightly dry bitterness to finish. It is really a typical pale ale with nothing more or nothing less.

Smell is bready malt with some herbal hop aroma.
Taste is slightly sweet malts with a slowly building herbal hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium with ample carbonation. The finish is dry and medium bitter.
Overall an easy drinking Pale Ale.

After Party Pale Ale has a thick, spongy, white head, a clear, bubbly, orange-gold appearance, lots of bubble streams, and heavy lacing, left behind. The aroma is of yeasty, slightly-spiced white bread, and the flavor is of those elements, with low-level hop bitterness, which displays itself, more, as the ale warms. Mouthfeel is medium, and After Party finishes in the dry and drinkable realm.

Saw this at my local Wally-World and thought it intriguing, considering the normal fair of offerings provided. I should have picked up the Variety 12-pack, but instead decided to go with just this one offering. Although I wasn't overly impressed, I will definitely give their other brews a chance.

Out of the can it pours a decent golden color with a bright white head and lacing that keeps down the glass. I noted distant hints of citrus to mix with distant hints of hops - not overpowering, but not quite discernable. The taste followed the smell as it also felt a bit watered down, if not quite carbonated. Overall, I did enjoy it. It was quite possibly one of the most mild pales I have ever had. Probably not what they were going for, but it was enjoyable at some level, at least for me.
